Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a collection of smart sensors, networks, servers, and services that allow for the automation, control, and management of environments such as factories, homes, transportation, energy, medical/healthcare facilities. All layers of networks, from applications, middleware, virtualization, connectivity, and devices, contribute to realise the full power of IoT. Intelligent gateways play a major role in creating a path for collecting data from devices for analysis and forwarding instructions from the upend servers to control the devices.

Our devices support the following interconnectivity protocols:

To leverage the current internet infrastructure with industrial automation devices designed with different interconnectivity protocols, an intelligent IoT gateway can connect legacy and new equipment, from garage door opener, vending machine, cooling or heating devices to industrial robot and wind turbine, to get the data from them, and in return to control them intelligently based on the instructions or analytical results from the connected servers. A versatile IoT gateway with various protocol supports is also used as the path between these automation devices and the cloud.
